In a few weeks Im getting a partial denture to replace two back and one front tooth. Im obviously fairly nervous about this, but also happy about having this (hopefully) amazing change to my life.

Just wanting to see what other peoples experiences were having this done and if they have any advice

Bit different but I had a little denture for just one tooth this year whilst waiting for an implant. It was fine. First off it was too tight and I panicked thinking I'd never be able to wear it but the dentist loosened it a bit too much and then it was fine.

After I was used to it I didn't notice it at all and it was completely undetectable. It did slip a bit when I ate but because it was temporary I didn't go back.

The only bit that bothered me was taking it out to soak at night like a proper old person grin < I'm not that old!>

Oh god I hadnt even thought about taking it out... argh. Bit worried about the slipping due to it being my back teeth, how am I gonna eat!?
